Combining historical narrative with close readings of several significant horror films, this brief volume offers a broad and lively introduction to cinematic horror. In doing so, it outlines and investigates important issues in the production, consumption, and cultural interpretation of the genre. An ideal text for perennially popular courses on the horror film genre. Examines the ways in which horror movies have been produced, received, and interpreted by filmmakers, audiences, and critics, from the 1920s to the present. Provides a short historical introduction of the horror film as an orientation to the field. Analyses a wide variety of major works in the genre, including Frankenstein , Cat People, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre , Halloween and Bram Stoker s Dracula.
